Yeah I wouldn't go for not seeing the midwife at every appt at all. It is pretty standard to run a few blood tests at this point in the pregnancy (mostly STDs) but I have never heard of anyone doing a glucose test this early unless there were known issues. And I would majorly balk at any test not explained to me personally by the dr/midwife (but maybe that is just me). My OB talks me through any tests needed/suggested thoroughly ahead of time so I can make an informed decision with no pressure.

Is the birth center near where you will be moving too? If so it might make sense to go ahead and get set up there and make the drive once a month for a while. Especially if you can get a better experience there.
